Number one cabin in the green mountains! Comes with access to a cedar sauna & a hot tub! After returning home from Italy my mom decided to make this into a light filled studio for painting and sculpture! I later turned this beauty into the guest house but soon after claimed it for my own!! The kitchen is a dream & the loft bed will give you the best nights sleep of your life! Horses over the fence, and just a few min to Magic, Bromley, Stratton and Okemo! @bentapplefarm

The space
THANKS FOR CHECKING US OUT!!!

You will find here a simplicity of shaker architecture my mother loved dearly…The space is very calming. It’s charming and comfortable, but wide open and full of sunshine!! Located on a beautiful dirt road the farm sits on rolling hills with stunning views all around you! The cabin is located 10 min to “town” and everything you could possibly need! There is a big grocery store, a health food store, a butcher, hardware store, record shop, and tons of restaurants! Our cabin is a true gem situated between some of Vermont’s best ski mountains making it one of the most popular airbnbs in the state! The kitchen was updated to be a chefs dream and the bathroom is beautiful and all original. The bathtub is the biggest tub in the state of Vermont!!!

What could be better
than falling asleep in the green mountains and waking up in the trees to the birds chirping around you or in the winter, to a fresh blanket of pristine snow while the embers still crackle in the wood burning stove??

The subject of TV, book and magazine features! Including Cooking Channel, DIY, HGTV and News 5 Chronicals in Boston. Books include Cabin Porn, Cabin Porn - Inside, Cabin Chronicals, and numerous other magazines as far off as Japan!! Brands include Orvis, Blundstone, & VT Country store. Often described as being one of the biggest cabins around…It’s romantic, and dreamy with just a touch of mid century modem! Check out the studio on Unique Sleeps on DIY & Travel!

AWESOME, READ ON…


Covid & Cleanings

It is your responsibility to keep our case count low! VT has been the model state throughout the pandemic. You will need to read up on the VT guidelines and requirements...Masks are not necessary to be worn on the property unless you come in contact with my family or another guest.

Our cleaning and linen fee is there to allow our cleaning lady to fully disinfect, clean, do laundry, fold linens and get the bathrooms and kitchen to sparkle. If you are the kind of person who understands all that goes into prepping a cabin with limited time for the following guest...Well, we want you! If you are the kind of person who will write a bad review because of the cleaning fee and what is STILL expected of you to do on check-out...Well, PLEASE skip this cabin!!! We love you but it’s not a good fit;) We charge just a bit more this year for all the changes we have experienced from Covid.

Airbnb has etiquette that is very different from hotels. YOU are expected to do A LOT and to return the cabin to how you found it. This prepares the space so our cleaning lady can be efficient and do a proper disinfecting without picking up your food bits. For most people this is just general stuff that goes without saying when you return a house. For those who find this off-putting please try to understand it takes everything we've got to get the cabins ready for you by 3pm…Respect the struggle and understand the cleaning lady needs to make a living as do we.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

We have many rules you will be asked to sign on arrival. Note the reviews where they say I have "gone overboard on these." I do this because I was in a 2 year lawsuit with Airbnb over guests who invited all their friends off the beach onto my houseboat and sank it. I lost 2 years fighting, and 2 more rebuilding. I almost went broke because “I didn’t have my rules clearly visible.” Does it go without say that you don’t invite all your fiends on a floating vessel? Yes, it does…But apparently I actually needed to say that, and the reservation being capped at 10 “this is not a party boat” was not enough;) So now you understand why our endless rules are actually NEEDED. Take care of this cabin as you would your own home or your grandmother’s and we will be all good!

So…

This is your space and your space only. Do not attempt to bring ANY guests…They are not allowed. So please don't ask. The only people allowed to this listing are the ones on the reservation. If you want to add 1 guest to a romantic weekend that is allowed but the total number of guests can not go above 3. This additional guest will need a blowup mattress if they join and must come in the same vehicle as you.

Now that’s out of the way…please DO enjoy this AWESOME cabin. You are going to LOVE it! Feel free to explore the grounds. Down the little road past the cabin you will find the hot tub in the riding ring. Past that you will see a tiny little white cabin and this is our sauna we just built for you! The code is 1267! The instructions are inside on the wall. Ask about taking a dip in the pond or about skating. You must have permission to do so...Just text ben.

IMPORTANT...

If you are high maintenance skip this cabin. If you want total isolation also skip it. Our little cabin is not far off so you WILL see other folks and you will hear me out on the tractor mowing or clearing snow...AND you will for sure get an unsolicited visit from our black lab!

PETS

We love our animals at Bent Apple Farm, but ALL of our property damage has been a result of pets. We only allow dogs and we do charge a 150 dollar pet fee. Dogs must be crate trained and can not come to the property without. It is your responsibility to NEVER leave your pup unattended in the cabin even for trip to the grocery store. This is not not like a hotel that has a special room for pets! If your dog is not brushed well with nails clipped it will do significant damage to our cabin. If your dog is a chewer please leave him behind. You dog must be trained to not jump on beds or furniture or he/she needs to not come.

Be very cautious during hunting season to keep your pup close. At night/dusk be sure your dog is with you as we have coyotes and hawks, owls and even bears in VT. It is a risk you must be willing to assume if you desire to bring your dog. Everyone says they have a “good, well behaved dog” but do you really in a new and strange environment? Think twice before you put you pup in a bad position and can’t have the vacation you deserve.

About the Art Studio/Equipment Shed:

Huge & wide open!!! Best wood-burning stove you have ever come across. Beautiful vintage clawfoot tub! Coziest loft on the planet. Best kitchen you have ever cooked in! Views into the woods are amazing when it snows at night! Cool in the summer with wraparound windows and a summer breeze and warm and toasty in winter with the biggest wood burning stove on the market! Fishing, hiking, cooking, boarding, skiing and exploring are what you do here...Not really a TV kind of home, but we do have one with some great classic Disney flicks for snow storms:) We are about 4min to Magic Mountain where old school and steep is the name of the game!!! We are 10 min to Bromley and 20 min door to door to Stratton!

You have access to a beautiful sauna we just built out of a little cabin and a beautiful new hot tub just about 30 yards from the cabin! These spaces are shared, but you will not be disturbed...Just let us know when you want them and you will have time all you yourselves! Text Ben on your way up and he will reserve times for you!

Internet:
Just locate the hotspot (black about the size of a phone) and be sure it’s charged and turned on. It will give you a password on the home screen. Enter that and you are set! Please no streaming or you will eat up all the data!

HOT TUB & GUIDELINES

We have two hot tubs and a sauna! Your hot tub is located about 30 yards from the cabin. If someone is using it you can pop down to our second hot tub on the property. They both have outstanding views! Just inquire if our farmhouse is rented because if it is the second hot tub is not available. Please text Ben to book a time for the hot tub or sauna so you have it all to yourself for the time you want it.

• YOU ARE USING THE HOT TUB AT YOUR OWN RISK

- PREGNANT WOMEN. PERSONS WITH HEART DISEASE. DIABETES OR HIGH
BLOOD PRESSURE PROBLEMS AND ELDERLY PEOPLE SHOULD NOT USE A HOTTUB OR SPA WITHOUT A DOCTOR'S PERMISSION.

• WE DO NOT ADVISE YOUNG CHILDREN TO USE THE HOT TUB.

.You MUST SHOWER before using the hot tub!!!

THE SAUNA - instructions inside sauna

USE SAUNA AT YOUR OWN RISK
(Door code is 1267 if locked)

1. The use of drugs, medication or alcohol prior to or during the sauna session may lead to dizziness or unconsciousness.
2. Please consult your physician if you are in doubt of your ability to use sauna.
3. No guests under the age of 18 are permitted in the sauna unless accompanied by
a parent, legal guardian, or supervising and consenting adult.
4. Please discontinue the use of the sauna if you feel light-headed, dizzy, or heat
exhausted.
5. Sauna sessions should be limited to a maximum of 40 minutes at one time.

THE POND: Swim and ice skate your own risk!

(Please ask Ben if you can use the pond as sometimes it will not be available if the white farmhouse is rented)

• At no time is there a lifeguard on duty, you (the renter) are responsible for the safe operation of the pond and are responsible for all persons in your group using the pond during your stay.

• My use of the pond facilities during my stay involves certain risks, including but not limited to:


1. The risk of injuries resulting from tripping or falling over obstacles in the pond area;

2.The risk of injuries resulting from unsupervised divers and swimmers and skaters colliding;

4. The risk of other injuries resulting from participating in any action in the pond or on the ice in winter.

5. I recognize and fully understand that the above list is not a complete or exhaustive list of all possible
risks; the list only provides examples of types of risks that I am assuming.

You have a nice area out back of the cabin for grilling. No need to bring much at all in the way of cooking/grilling we are well stocked!

WHAT TO BRING...

Bring extra towels for the hot tub and sauna! We have you covered for regular bathroom towels.

If you wish to use our beautiful wood burning stove we ask you bring a stack of dry kindling! We supply all the logs you will ever need and starter sticks, but our wood is usually off the property and tends to be green. You are welcome to as much of it as you want but you will have a hard time lighting it if you don’t bring a bundle of dry kindling from home! If you forget to pick it up our local grocery store and hardware store have stacks waiting for you but keep in mind they close early!!
